    There is so much of this stuff in my ask box, and most of it not even anonymous, but I don’t want to call out any particular user because I know they’ll then get a lot of hateful asks and the cycle will just continue.

    First off, there’s a comma splice in your ask. I just have to let you know that, on account of how I’m a pretentious prick.

    I hope that I’m not transphobic. I’ve been public and vocal in my support for the rights of trans people for years, and I’ve tried over the years to amplify trans voices, from T Cooper to Stephen Ira Beatty, rather than pretending to be able to speak for them. 

    Look, I am a person, and I am not a particularly good one. I am screwed up and make a lot of mistakes. But I am not a piece of trash. I would imagine that you are also screwed up and make a lot of mistakes, but you aren’t a piece of trash either.

    But it is still hurtful—very hurtful—to hear people call me a piece of trash. It just makes me sad to hear, the way I think it would make most people sad to hear. The certainty and lack of nuance in that characterization reflects a broader lack of nuance in online discourse these days that just bums me out. 

    Stuff like this? It’s not activism. It’s hate mongering. 

    And it’s not even correct. Just because you levy an accusation at someone doesn’t make you right about it.

    This is the kind of stuff that will ruin the internet, if we let it. I hope we can get ourselves together and end this so we can have good things.

  • Question: John, I have really really bad anxiety. I know in the past you've said that you have/had it too. How in the world are you able to do so much with it? (Like go on stage at vidcon or meet so many nerdfighters) Is there some secret I never received? Maybe a memo that skipped me? - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    fishingboatproceeds:

    1. Sorry. That sucks.

    2. It’s not easy and I don’t always do it well, but I’ve been living with this for a long time and have a good medication regimen that works pretty well (at the moment at least) and also have a good therapist I’m able to work really closely with. None of that happened overnight, and it’s a difficult thing to live while you’re figuring out how to manage it. But it’s important to know that it can get better, and that you are not alone in this experience.

    3. With public events: It’s not something I’m terrible comfortable with. Like a lot of people with anxiety problems, I spend immense blocks of time stuck in obsessive thought spirals that are difficult to pull myself out of. For a couple weeks before Vidcon, for instance, it will be basically impossible for me to think about anything other than Vidcon, and I will feel really scared and anxious and unable to work, which is why I can’t space public events out. (Like, if I did a reading once a month or whatever, I would basically be unable to work half the time. So when we do stuff, we usually do them back-to-back.) 

    3a. That acknowledged, for me at least things get easier the more you experience them. I’m a lot more comfortable in front of large crowds than I used to be. (It doesn’t really feel like a social experience to me, so it doesn’t usually engage my social anxiety. Book signings do feel like social experiences, though, so…yeah.) 

    4. I wish I could speak to you from some lofty mountain, having conquered the demons of mental health, but I cannot. This is an ongoing part of my life (I had a panic attack today, for instance). But I’m much better at managing it than I used to be. And I’m lucky to not have many of the disabilities associated with anxiety disorders (I can drive a car, for instance). But anxiety is part of my daily life, and it makes life harder for me and for people I love, and I still have a long way to go.

GOD DAMMIT JOHN

I’ve had this conversation with John. He’s like “It’s not that sad” and I’m like “It’s very very sad.” And he’s like “I dunno, man…really?” and I’m like, “You’re a weirdo.”

It’s nice to see he finally gets it.

Yeah okay. It’s pretty sad.

I have been losing my shit all day, to be honest with you.
